"How many different types of berries are there?"

If you want your own summertime treat, consider growing berries in your garden. They come with a sweet reward and are packed with vitamins and antioxidants that help fight cancer! However, do some research before eating any berry because not all of them are safe to eat.

Although the definition of a berry is technically any small, bright-colored fruit with no stone or pit (like strawberries), there are many more types. You may be surprised to know that eggplants and even bananas are also considered berries!
Other examples include grapes, pomegranates, tomatoes…
The list goes on!

Berries are known for their health benefits. They’re packed with antioxidants that boost the immune system and even prevent cancer! Here is a list of types of berries you should try to get your hands on:

1. Acai berries are full of antioxidants, which helps fight off free radicals in your body that cause damage to cells or DNA in healthy tissue. These free radical molecules are found in air pollution, cigarette smoke, UV rays from sunlight, radiation therapy for cancer patients and other things you come into contact with every day so it's important to keep them at bay!  The fiber content in acaï helps lower cholesterol levels while giving your digestive system a break from carbs.

2.Agarita Berry is a small, dark berry from Central and South America. The fruit has been used for centuries by indigenous people for its medicinal properties to help with digestive issues such as stomach pain, indigestion, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. These berries are often referred to as the "miracle berry" because they can suppress your taste buds making sour foods taste sweet! 

3.Blackberries-As we all know, blackberries are a delicious and nutritious fruit. They offer many health benefits such as: protecting the heart, improving digestion and promoting mental clarity and healthy skin.
But did you know that blackberries can also help with weight loss? It's true! This is because they are low in calories but high in fiber content which means they make you feel full for longer periods of time. And because of this, it will be easier to keep your calorie intake under control without feeling hungry or deprived.

4.Goji Berries-Have you ever heard of goji berries? They are pretty much the most amazing thing in the world. And if you're like me, then your first thought was "I don't know what that is." Well, I'm about to tell you! Goji berries are rich in antioxidants and Vitamin A, which can help with eye health. This might seem like a small detail, but it's actually really important to take care of your eyesight because without them we would be totally blind (pretty much). So next time someone asks for some healthy food suggestions or something cool to try out - go ahead and recommend these delicious little things from @nutrient elements!
